“An entertaining, thoughtful rendition of Frankenstein’s  conception”—School Library Jounral, starred review

Praise for Emma Carroll’s
In Darkling Wood

★ “A haunting and poignant exploration of family, loss, and redemption.“—Booklist, Starred Review

★ “A tale brimming with emotion and atmosphere….[In Darkling Wood] is absorbing and well written. Hand this to readers who enjoy fantasy, fairy tales, and magical realism.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

Magic and mystery adds appeal to this already compelling family drama…and Carroll manages to wrap all of the threads into a wholly satisfying ending.“—Bulletin

Beautifully drawn, and the pragmatic prose and completely modern language (except for the letters) ground the story. The fairies aren’t covered in pixie dust here. Carroll is becoming well-known in her native England; this book should win her American fans.”—Kirkus Reviews
